Bleu Olive - Delicious Mediterranean Food in Durham

Bleu Olive – Delicious Mediterranean Food in Durham

What a wonderful surprise to find this Mediterranean restaurant after eating in many local places that have been disappointing. We ordered appetizers and salads -all delicious. The atmposhere was sophisticated and warm and the service was excellent. We had the grilled octopus (perfectly grilled), fried calamari, steamed mussels, roasted red pepper dip with pita and each dish was excellent -the  mussels were a bit small but I am used to New England mussels which are big and juicy. Then we shared a beet and goat cheese salad and a kale Caesar and both were very good although my favorite was the beet salad. We shared an entree of seared sea scallops with garlic mashed potatoes and mushroom au jus, the scallops were cooked perfectly. Although this was not a Mediterranean dish it was very good and the other entrees on the menu are more main stream and tend towards American flavors. If you are looking for a truly Mediterranean place stick with the appetizers.
